Introduction: Timers of 8051 With Blinking Led Example Part-1

About: Hi all, I'm Pawan Joshi who works on embedded system and IoT. I'm really passionate about embedded system and IoT. Here through this page you will come to know about embedded system from scratch to the latest …

In this tutorial I'm going to tell you about how to timers of 8051. Here we will discuss about timer 0 in mode 1. Next tutorial we will discuss other modes as well.

Step 1: Software Used:

As we are showing proteus simulation so FOR CODING AND SIMULATION YOU REQUIRED:

1 Keil uvision: Their are lots of product from keil. so you will be required c51 compiler. You can download that software from here

2 Proteus Software for simulation: This is the software to show simulation. You will get lot of information to download this software.

If you are doing it in hardware then you would require one software that is flash magic to upload the code in your hardware. Remember flash magic is developed by NXP. So you can not upload all 8051 family microcontroler through this software. So Philips based controller only you can upload.

Step 2: Hardware Used:

As here we are using one blink led example for explaining timers. So you can connect one led to port 1 5th pin. Here I'm debugging from keil software. so I'll explain timers from software only. But you can get the debugger for 8051.


Here in our demo video we are using proteus simulation but definetly if you are doing it in your hardware you will be required these components for this project:
8051 Development board: So if you have this board it will be better so that you can easily upload the code by yourself.

USB to UART converter: This is 9 Pin D type male Connector For RS232 O/p
Some Jumper Wires
